Installing Injectors?

I have a friend who asked if i could install injectors in his 6.0. I am very familiar with my 7.3s and good under the hood of a truck. Is this a job I could do in my normal garage? I havent heard of anyone doing this on their own? should I just send him to a shop for this?

Its pretty easy. Takes a long T40 to get the injectors out. Only thing that most people wont have. I cant comment on how it compares to a 7.3 injector install.

have any specific questions? Ill try to answer

be sure to pull the pass side finder well. it makes it alot easier to get to the valve cover bolts.

I have done both and the only real difference is on the 6.0's you have to remove a lot more stuff to get it done. Not difficult though.
